31.someone 解析】由本文的第一句话“‘Down-to-earth’means some—one or something that is honest,realistic and easy to deal with.”可知“Down—to—earth”指的是诚实,现实、平易近人的那些人。这里的someone和后面是相对应的。故答案为someone。
32.to解析】talk to的意思是“和某人聊天”,talk这里不及物动词,后面需要接一个介词。在从句中介词不能省略。作者这里要表达的意思是“和那些诚实的平易近人的人聊天是
很惬意的。”故答案为to。
33.opposite 解析】从文章第二段的内容可以看出,A down—to—earth person和那些表面上装的很重要的人物正好相反。所以这里应填“相反的”,故答案为opposite。
34.important 解析】从本句后面的一句话可以看出,A down—to—earth person就算是重要的人物,他们也不会把这种显赫写在脸上。所以前面应填important。故答案为important。
35.go 解析】go to one’s heads的意思是“展现、表现”,俗语。用在文中表示“把…写在脸上”,生怕别人不知道的显摆。故答案为go。
36.those 解析】本句的意思是“他们不认为自己比别的不重要的人更好、更优秀。”这里比较的是down—to—earth persons和别人。故答案为those。
37.often 解析】本句话的意思是“那些自我感觉很了不起、内心充满骄傲的人,总是不需要理由的就被人认为是趾高气扬的人。”故这里答案为often。
38.n0 解析】本句话的意思是“那些趾高气扬的人不可能是那些平易近人的人”。这是否定的意思,故答案为no。
39.use 解析】后面的一句话“The expression is‘both—feet—on—the—ground.’”表示down—to—earth的另一种表达方法是both—feet.on—the—ground。而后一种说法是美国人的用法,常常被美国人使用。故答案为use。
40.with 解析】根据对等关系,这里应该与后面的部分“a person with a good understanding”相对应。意思是“那些脚踏实地的人往往是那些很了解现实的人。”故答案为with。
41.of 解析】“对现实的了解”的英文表达是“the understanding of reality”,这里的介词用of。故答案为of。
42.but 解析】这里表达的前后句意是一种转折关系。前面说“he may have dreams,”而后面“he does not allow them to block his knowledge...”的意思却是“但是他也不会让这些梦想阻挡自己对什么是现实的理解。”故答案为but。
43.what 解析】解析同上。这里是一个名词性从句,what在句中做主语。故答案为what。
44.person 解析】本句话的意思是“与此相反的一类人是那些想入非非的人。”根据上下文的要求这里应该填入man的同义词。故答案为person。
45.whose 解析】这是一个后置定语从句,用whose来引导,表示mind与dreamer的所属关系。故答案为whose。
46.Sometime解析】通过对后面句子的分析,我们可以知道那些想人非非、飘飘欲仙的人有朝一日也是可以“双脚落地的”,那就是“sharp words from teacher”,所以这里表示的是“有朝一日”,故答案为sometime。
47.bring 解析】通过前一句话“such a dreamer Can be brought back to earth.”中的brought可以知道,这里应该填bring,表示“把…带到”。故答案为bring。
48.1ikely 解析】前面所说的the person who is down—to—earth与the person whose both feet on the ground大体是一类人,所以这里表达的意思是“很有可能就是一类人”。be likely to do就表达了这种意思。故答案为likely。
49.When 解析】这里的一句话其实与下一半句“when we are down—to—earth,...”所起到的作用是一样的,同时两者也是并列的,when表达了“当…”,所以这里填when。故答案为when。
50.toward 解析】作者要表达的意思是“我怎么才能对别人诚实。”英语中表达“对某人…”一般是用介词toward。故答案为toward。
